On Thursday 10
November Year Six went to Eden Camp.
One of the many huts that was praised by other classmates
of 6SA was the U-Boat Menace. This hut was all about the
famous British U-boats, which were during World War II.
This hut was very dark and had flashing red lights
everywhere. The purpose of this hut was to take you around
a sunken U-boat. The best part was when you could see a
dead crewman and if you got close at a certain time there
were bubbles coming out of the body, which scared some of
The other praised hut was the Blitz. This hut was
depressing as you could see dead bodies crushed by the
rubble and some children crying in the background. This
one was my particular favourite as there was so much
atmosphere, like the smell made you feel like you were
actually in a bombed out city of London and the way
everything looked so realistic - it was just brilliant! Also
the sounds made you feel like there were actually
bomber planes over your head!!
The gift shop was great! (and not just because there were bullets and dog-tags there although I did like
them!) The actual reason I thought the gift shop was great is because everyone that worked there was so
pleasant and well-mannered, and just gave the whole trip a boost of ratings.
Some of the huts were very interesting: the most
interesting one was where it showed you the nuclear bomb
codes and you could pretend you were bombing the
world’s countries. And it also showed you the maps of the
world and the enigma. If you don’t know what the Enigma
code is, when the Germans needed to send secret codes to
each other they would send random letters. When the
Germans received the code a team tried to work out what
the code meant and in the end they did! There is a film all
about it called ‘The Imitation Game’ starring Benedict
All in all the trip was fantastic! I would definitely go again. I
would rate this trip 9/10.
